Witness tabular icebergs in East GreenlandEast Greenland

Situated between the Arctic sea ice and the Greenlandic icecap, and only accessible via supply ships six months a year, East Greenland remains one of the most isolated settlements in the world.

With its sprawling fjords and tabular icebergs, its landscape can be mistaken for Antarctica, yet its Inuit and Ammassalik culture still remains rooted in a country referred to as one of the last outposts of civilisation.

Aurora Expeditions’ East Greenland Explorer tour showcases a mosaic of steep dramatic mountains, countless lakes, waterfalls, streams and rivers, plus majestic glaciers and fluorescent green valleys.

Discover the world’s largest fjord system by inflatable Zodiac boat and listen out for the eerie crackling and popping of sea ice, and the thunderous roar of calving glaciers. You'll also kayak past spectacular icebergs in water teeming with whales and ringed, harped and hooded seals.

Or for the super adventurous, scuba dive below the icy sea where icebergs, catfish, lumpsuckers and prehistoric-looking sea cucumbers all vie for your attention. On shore landings stretch your legs during one of the hikes across colourful tundra and steep mountain ranges, and meet friendly Inuit locals who still practice a traditional hunting and fishing lifestyle. You may even encounter a musk ox or Arctic fox on your journey.


Prices for the Aurora Expeditions East Greenland Explorer voyage start from US$7,815.
